In his 30 year-career Beveridge has held posts including financial director at private label manufacturer of household and personal care, McBride. He has also held roles at Cable & Wireless Communications and Marlborough Stirling.

Peter Baker, non-executive chairman of Finsbury Food Group, said of the appointment: “Our board is comprised of experts in their fields and Bob’s appointment is a strong addition and one that complements our current strengths.

“The recent reshaping of the board shows our commitment to having the expertise and capabilities to help build upon our strong market position, drive growth and continue to deliver shareholder value.”
